Familiar faces for Wilson

If anyone in our squad knows what sort of game to expect against Wigan Athletic on Sunday, it's Wilson Palacios!

The midfielder meets the Latics for the first time since leaving them for N17 back in January.

And although much has changed at the DW Stadium since his departure, including the manager, he is still able to give a fair assessment of our next opponents.

Wilson said: "This should be a good game. Wigan always play good football and they will make it difficult for us. Nonetheless, we hope to win.

"I still have many friends at the club and I've had three weeks of them talking to me about the game, sending me loads of texts!"

One friend in particular, Honduras international team-mate Hendry Thomas, has almost come in as a direct replacement for Wilson at Wigan.

And as two tough-tackling midfielders, the reverberations could be felt across North London when they clash at the Lane.

But Wilson insists they are different, adding: "Hendry is a good player but I wouldn't say that he is similar to me.

"We don't really share the same style and I believe we like to play a different sort of game but, nonetheless, he is hard to play against

"Maynor Figueroa, the left-back, probably won't play on Sunday because he is injured, but he is also a good friend of mine from the national side along with Hendry."
